Crafting a Quilt for Global Change
Craftivist workshop led by Vanessa Marr and Sarah Elwick
1.00 – 3.00pm
Join lecturers and makers Vanessa Marr and Sarah Elwick in the North Gallery at Brighton CCA to contribute your own colourful quilt panel to their growing collaborative Global Challenges Quilt project, inspired by the university’s Global Challenges agenda and the UN Sustainability goals. The quilt, which began in November 2022 as part of Research & Knowledge Exchange Week, includes text and images that entice action and conversations around the topics of equality, gender, race, inclusivity, poverty, climate change and wellbeing.
Please bring the following with you if you have them:
Pre-loved fabric for cutting up, for example old cotton or Denim garments, pillowcases, old curtains, other (not slippery) fabric
Needles and thread
Further materials will be provided and we will have some additional fabrics on hand.
This is an informal making session, no previous experience is required. All welcome.
If you cannot join this workshop but have fabric to donate for its cause, please email email@example.com to arrange drop off to Edward Street.
This is an in person event taking place within the gallery’s Reading Room and will be happening whilst the space is open to the public.
The space is wheelchair accessible and there are two accessible parking bays available by the back entrance to the quad. Please get in touch to find out more about their location.
There is an accessible toilet and a gender-neutral toilet.
Comfortable seating can be organised and there are quiet spaces available.
